Video | Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber dominate this year’s MTV EMAs

As Lady Gaga swept three prizes out of her five nominations, the up and coming teen Justin Bieber scooped double victories for Best Male and Best Push Act.


Yesterday night's MTV European Music Awards saw some of the world’s best artists performing under one roof at the Caja Majica in Madrid, Spain. Kesha, Rihanna, Shakira, Linkin Park and Miley Cryus were a few of the performing artistis who rocked the house.

With both Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber who could not attend the night, the pop idols scored the most awards, beating Katy Perry, Rihanna, Usher, Eminem, and Kanye West. With Gaga taking home Best Pop Act, Best Female Act and Best Song, Bieber managed to snatch Best Male from seniors like Eminem, Enrique Iglesias, Kanye West and Usher. He also beat Kesha, B.o.B and Alexandra Burker at the Best Push Act prize.
